that has brought down cia director david petraeus is down staring general john allen, the top u.s. commander in afghanistan. the pentagon says the fbi has uncovered thousands of potentially inappropriate emails between allen and jill kelley, the woman who complained of harassment from petraeus' lover, paula broadwell. her complaint to the fbi led to the discovery of broadwell and petraeus's relationship, prompting his resignation on friday. allen succeeded petraeus in afghanistan last year. the pentagon says allen will remain the u.s. commander in afghanistan for now, but the plans to nominate him to become nato's supreme allied commander are on hold pending the outcome of an investigation. on monday night, fbi agents continued their probe by searching broadwell's north carolina home. as the obama administration faces turmoil with two top military leaders, reports are continuing to emerge of the potential makeup of its second term cabinet. according to the washington post, massachusetts senator and former presidential candidate john kerry has emerged as a potential candidate to be

lost more than 40% of their wealth from 2007 to 2010. nearly one in six u.s. residents is officially poor, the highest rate in 50 years. 22% of american children live in poverty. we're facing an economic situation that resembles the years leading up to the great depression. now, this prevailing budget plan calls for deep cuts, environmental protection, social security, medicare, medicaid. well, corporations and the top 1% get tax cuts of nearly $3 trillion over the next decade. this is not how you protect a democracy. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from texas seek recognition? mr. poe: i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, so ordered. mr. poe: mr. speaker, the -- a president has finally given us his balanced plan to allegedly avoid the fiscal cliff. he wants to raise taxes by $1.6 trillion. he wants another stimulus package of $50 billion. he wants the authority to raise the debt ceiling without asking congress for approval. say it isn't so, mr. speaker.
and democratic attorney general. one of our two u.s. senators was an independent, elected twice. an independent missed winning the governorship by 15,000 votes over a million passed in 1973. we were the ticket splitting capital of america. we have cents settled back into partisan voting with the rest of america. this is a very polarized era. having said that, when you have close elections you still have a band of voters who will mix and match on the ballot, either because they want to mix and match or they are simply reacting to the individual candidates. in the case of romney and kaine, i have personally been in situations where straw votes were taken among large groups and you generally find you have 3, 4, 5% of the romney boaters picking tim kane for various reasons. some of these romney voters are more moderate republicans and the like tim kane better than his opponent. are there similar voters for obama and george allen? i am sure there are. i never met one of them. but i will say this -- george allen, despite what happened in 2006, he has won from time to time in running for statewide off

, and one of the topics that came up quite a bit was the attacks on the u.s. embassy and while those of us here that might obviously highlight the need for the securities sector reform i feel like a lot of tunisian actors interpret things very different and to some the less says that we need stronger security forces and that some of the changes, some of the modest changes we might see as positive and the very modest direction of the reform over the past year are seen by some as a cause for the week security forces and the call for incidents like the attacks on the embassies. if you can comment on this tension and how to address that. >> the iron fist notes the outrage. you want to jump in on this? >> sure. i mean, first of all i would sort of like to the secure a sector reform and egypt would weaken the security service more than it already is because there's been very little security sector reform as i don't see evidence of that. but also some of these the assumption that you are necessarily going after the leaders inside the security sector or security sector reform i think is a misconce

baghdad. it was one of the worst attacks against iraqi military so far this year. the u.s. soldier charged with the massacre of afghan civilians in march appeared in court on monday for a preliminary hearing to determine whether he will face a full court-martial. robert bales faces 16 counts of murder, one for each of his victims. musa mahmuddi of the afghanistan independent human rights commission called on the west to ensure the victims' families are heard. >> we strongly ask the united states that justice should be applied in a trial should be based on the principles of fair trial, and provide opportunities and time to the victims' family members to be heard in the court of the united states. >> bales was on his fourth combat tour following earlier stints in iraq and afghanistan. on monday, a former military comrade testified that robert bales had shown no remorse after committing the shootings. prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. a family in pakistan is accusing the u.s. of killing an elderly woman and wounding six of her grandchildren and a drone attack late last month. the str
that really did move to us consequential actions, 44'6" u.s. soldiers killed in iraq not to mention the other loss of life that occurred there. that really made a difference. and i would say that if you live in a glass house, don't throw stones. and there is no worthy reason to throw any stone at susan rice. >> very profound if you live in a glass house cast no stones. we've been joined by laura richardson from california. thank you for joining us here. this very unqualified woman of course spear headed efforts to bring the international sanctions against i ran, sanctions on -- iran, sanctions on north korea and has brought significant to bringing down kadafi. we now are going to hear from a very special colleague, terri sule from the seventh district of alabama. she has very special insight into the qualifications and integrity of susan rice. thank you for joining us. >> good morning. today i stand with my colleagues, proudly stand with my colleagues in expressing our outrage about the unfair attacks against the u.s. ambassador susan rice. these recent attacks are nothing short of offensive.
of the iranian nuclear program and what people assume our u.s. deadlines -- not deadlines. from the u.s. perspective, and it differs from israel's, the u.s. says it cannot accept a situation where iran is capable of crossing the nuclear threshold either secretly or in some way where the u.s. would not be able to react or in a fortified compound. the assumption of some people is that that will happen within the next 12 to 18 months. maybe because of mishaps or deliberately because they do not want to come within that threshold, that will not happen within the next year and a half. if you do not reach an agreement between now and summer, i think it will become more and more difficult to say there is a process, even if iran is not approaching the threshold. and that is where the pressure will build, both from within the u.s. and israel, for the u.s. to do something. i would not say the president has mismanaged this. to some degree, he has. this is a national security issue. the u.s. has put containment off the table. one can argue whether that was a good strategic choice. it is very much o
the top u.s. commander in afghanistan is also being scrutinized. we will have the very latest in this awful story. >> i know bill o'reilly feels like america has changed and it's no longer in the control of white power. >> bill: so now i'm david duke as the far left media runs wild after the re-election of president obama. we'll have a story that will make you furious. >> this country was founded by latin people. >> obama is reelected. >> yes. >> how exeighted are you. >> i would have left the country if he wasn't. >> jesse watters pays a visit to some far left folks. >> i know i'm talking to the enemy right now. >> don't hate me. >> i don't. >> i thought liberals wanted to embrace the other side. >> i don't think that's true at all. >> bill: we will show you what happened in the latest edition of watters world. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the far left running wild. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. flush for president obama's victory last week. fa
that vacancy at the cia has also now touched the current top u.s. commanding general in afghanistan, whose successor for that job is due to have his confirmation hearings in washington tomorrow. well, today at his first post-re-election press conference, the president largely deflected questions about who he would be appointing to all the top jobs in the administration for his second term. he deflected those questions today with one notable exception. one notable exception that just about took the roof off that room today. did you see this? >> senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today that they want to have watergate-style hearings on the attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. and that if you nominate susan rice for secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. as senator graham said, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter from making a nomination like that? >> first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nomi
. as of this weekend, for politicizing the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya, he's not only saying he would block susan rice from being nominated to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state if president obama makes that nomination, he now says he would block all nominations for anybody to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state until he feels satisfied that he, john mccain, has received the information that he wants to receive about libya. this coming from the man who didn't bother to show up to the three-hour briefing on libya that was in his committee last week. but he's not embarrassed by that. he wants america not to have a secretary of state until he gets what he wants. even though we don't know what it is that he wants. because it's definitely not more information, because when information is being offered, he's not showing up for the briefings. how did john mccain get to be the republican party's north star on foreign policy in 2012? i mean, senator mccain had a capital h heroic military career. being held as a prisoner of war and holding himself in circumstances as a prisoner o
for u.s. central command in tampa. pentagon and f.b.i. sources have characterized the e-mails as "inappropriate" and "flirtatious." one senior official said, for example, kelley would write something like "saw you on television, you were terrific." allen would respond with something like "thanks, sweetheart." but another senior defense official said some of the e- mails appear to be more than just friendly exchanges, more than just terms of endearment. he went on to say: we would not have had the inspector general looking at this if we didn't believe he may have crossed the line." allen denies having an affair. a person close to kelley said adamantly there was absolutely no physical sexual relationship. that person also noted kelley used an account she shares with her husband to correspond with allen. but even flirtatious e-mails could cost allen his career if the inspector general determines that the content is dishonorable and violates the uniform code of military justice. a law enforcement source says the f.b.i. turned up no criminal activity and no evidence that clas

break out before you eat the meal . >> steve: thank you very much pop eye. five-days before the u.s. election . anything is happening and waiting for an october surprise and this probably would have been it if we had known about it one of our predator drones was fired upon by a couple of iranian fighter planes. they squeezed off two volleys of machine depun fire. first time iran has shot at our aircraft . but it is clearly an act of war. they were asked about it yesterday. curious timing before the election and we are finding out about after? >> it is before the election, the white house give you any guidance as to whether give you information. >> i have said this two or 3or four or five timings . we don't comment on classified missions and i will not get in to discussions that occurred between this department and the white house. they were informed early on. >> using the cover of classified. and you know, if you will recall, this time shots fired. it was not shot down. last time wen the drone was shot down the american public didn't know until the iranian media released pictures of
primarily used by her mother. according to manhattan's u.s. attorney's office matthey in march, that secret advanced results from tests of an alzheimer's disease drug. prosecutors say he is that information make more than $276 million and trays from various funds. it may be very well be the most lucrative insider traders game ever. >> human error is partly to blame for the explosion in massachusetts that leveled a strip club and damaged more than three dozen surrounding buildings. the explosion more this happened. the fire marshal said a worker accidentally punctured a high-pressure pipe with a probe while looking for the source of a gas leak. they are still looking at what caused the explosion. 18 people were hurt in the blast and that could have been worse. keep in mind there already investigating a gas leak in that area. it had already been evacuated so lot of people were not there. more and more than a hundred people are dead in hundred others injured have a factory fire in bangladesh. he you can see the flames there. there's a ton of smoke. a couple thousand people were in the building

the biggest impact in the u.s.? >> one of the most powerful campaigns was the trayvon martin case. a 17-year-old african-american, killed in florida, tragically. two weeks after the incident, there was no media coverage of all. a private injustice. the parents start a petition, and then it goes viral. the importance is not just the individual acts of arresting his killer in prosecuting him, but the public. the result, the awareness of the tragic situation of young african-americans not being treated fairly in the justice system or the "stand your ground" laws, where you can almost impunitively shoot someone. that is some of the really exciting things we see. >> in trayvon martin's case, clearly there was an impact, but they were not waiting. they were in there pretty soon, on the case. what i want to ask you -- do you find a difference in the way that companies -- you have a lot of petitions aimed at companies that do specific things. obviously, some have had more political implications. is there a difference in response between business institutions and political institutions? >> politician
the u.s. right now. and it has been building for decades. it is not something new. it's not a recession. it is is sapping the ability of the american economy to grow and it is topping -- zapping the ability of the average american to rise. until we look at the major core issues that are making the u.s. more attractive to business, we will go back to the fiscal cliff discussion over and over again. unless we can get our economy really moving and growing in the long run, these will just occur over and over again. we identified eight areas, as you mentioned, where we find there is broad consensus where we believe these things would really move the needle in a reasonable time frame, two, three, four years. there is some real bipartisan support. the first is the need of a sustainable budget compromise. that is widely accepted by all. two, easing on highly skilled immigration now. yes, when a broader immigration reform, but this is one of the abilities to really move rapidly to inject skills and to the economy and fill jobs badly need to be filled to sustain our growth. it is not a long-term
. >> we have to go to break right now. we are just getting warmed up. you are watching the 2012 u.s. senate debate. we will wrap things up right after this. >> our next question comes from our panelists. >> i think this goes to the congressman. you touched on this mask cool fiscal cliff of large spending cuts. this could potentially cost the average person $3,500. will this happen? >> i will do everything i can to see that it doesn't happen. the effective have would be unimaginable. even the secretary of defense has said this is not a good idea. this is a fiscal cliff and this is serious. we need to be serious about it. that is why if we repeal obama care, we will have eliminated that problem. but a form of transportation, there was one individual that was making overcome $170,000. 18 months later, there was 1690 that were making over 170,000. we have a spending country in this -- is spending problem in this country. we need to control our spending first. i can give you all kinds of places where we have ways, fraud, and abuse. >> we cannot be allowed to go over the fiscal cliff. we
go to the u.s. senate and do exactly what john edwards did, and that will immediately start campaigning to be present. i believe our federal legislators are there to take care of federal business and our state legislatures, to be in our -- federal legislators ought to be down in our state, sending dollars to the state, and not sending them to the federal government to have federal legislators play a large game of twister to get the best position. host: bob cusack? guest: the caller mentioned term limits, and it was something mitt romney embraced, and the republicans on capitol hill have not embraced that, and neither have the democrats. it was talked about in the newt gingrich era, but both republicans and democrats are not fond of term limits. there is an argument against it, and that is when members get here, they promised to term- limit themselves, and when they get here they do not know how to legislate, they do not know where the bathrooms are, and just like anything they get experience and better at it, and they break the term-limit pledge. term limits will be discusse
